X x X Anniversary Tea Cozy: 2-Cup Version Using Rowan Felted Tweed
In our opinion, every home needs a teapot—and every teapot needs a tea cozy! We designed this cute little cozy to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our shop. It’s a combination of a few of our favorite things—cables, tweed, and tea! We made sure to sneak in ten (X!) criss-crossing cables, too.
We knit this wee, 2-cup teapot version (a free adaptation to our original X x X Anniversary Tea Cozy) with two, tonal colors of Rowan Felted Felted Tweed marled together. This DK-weight blend of merino wool, alpaca, and viscose is a Churchmouse go-to—and it does a fine job of keeping a teapot warmer, longer!
To fit a standard 2-cup teapot, like our Smith Teapot and Brown Betty.
